All this talk about gas, transit and back to school traffic (starts next week so watch out!) made me ponder a bit. I wanted to hold an informal WWD! survey... a game of sorts (for you MLC & O&E fanatics). I'll tally up the numbers hopefully at the end of the night and adjust accordingly for any later posts.
What I wanted to find out is this (and I'm sure it'll morph into some other added info):
- Numbah of licensed drivers in da house
- Numbah of vehicles owned (running and using - not da kine junkalunka kine sitting in da yard)
- Wat kine you get? Car, truck, SUV?
- If you have multiple vehicles, is more than one out on da road? (Eh, no cast judgement if all five on da road ok? Maybe they work different kine places or gotta do something aftah das why.)
- How much (total) do you spend on gas weekly?
If you like add any oddah info, no shame geev' um.
And if you tink too personal, no need answer.
The City and County has done a current and projected traffic study (useless fact tidbit: dat's da two black tubes stretching across da road and everytime a car runs ovah it, da tally is added to da clicker in a box on da side in case you evah wondered wat da rubbah thing on da road was) and it doesn't look good but if gas prices get worse, who knows if it'll hold true.
Before we begin, I recall on a newscast a day or two ago dat recent car owners are now spending mo' on gas den their monthly car payments....
Wassap Wit Dat!

3 vehicles: car, truck, motorcycle
Motorcycle to/from work. Car sometimes if Da Wife schedule changes or if rain. Truck on weekends.

DA PIDGIN WORD OF DA DAY! -
(as quoted from Da Kine Dictionary & Pidgin To Da Max… wit a Braddah Lance twist)
(junk ah LUNK ah)
Haole Translation: Old, beat up vehicle - not in very good condition
Usual characteristics: broken something (window, door, etc), banged up, dented body or bumper, rust... but she still run and that's all that matters.
Use: describing one ole' buss' up car
Sentence: “Brah, cause you no take kea yo' car, came au' junkalunkah li'dat.”
Sentence: “Ho, shame you going take yo' date in your junkalunkah-mobile.”
